Day 1: Had to buy the last 10 bottles at WineStreet Spirits for $30 a bottle. Can't say I didn't promote it. Drinking nicely on the pop and our with minerals, blueberries, dust, earth and gravel. Medium plus finish. 92 points
Day 2: A bit tight no day 1 but nice improvement today. Exotic spices, blueberries, minerals, dark cherries, coffee grounds and gravel. Just a really tasty wine and I am sure it will improve with age but so good now. 94 points

Wow. One of the best wines I had in recent memory. I was thinking it’s too early to open, but was told by Thomas that it’s good right after the release before they shut down for a few years. Was so glad I tried this one young. Amazing dark fruit, some spice, smooth mouth coating tannins and long finish. Bravo.

Loved it. Everything was on point. Tannins, fruit, acidity, and alcohol integrated in one cohesive beautiful wine. I can’t believe it was only $25 on release.

Wow. Liked it much better than the previous two bottles. I was surprised it has lasted this long past the drinking window.

This wine is way too young to drink. Tannic at this time. Needs time in the bottle. Dark fruit and cassis but too astringent to drink yet. If you do, decant for 8 hours or more. I spoke with the winemaker - this is expected.
